Laying claim to the highest modern distillery in the world, La Estacada sits at 7,200 feet above sea level. It is here that the Herrara family produce their exquisit sipping tequila Tierra Noble. La Estacada is located just outside the equisite town of Mazamitla in Jaliso Mexico.
Two unique aspects of Tierra Noble which make it the perfect tequila are at these high altitudes, the air is cool and crisp which causes a much slower fermentation resulting in a musto with well developed flavours (using exclusively Montpelier wine yeast) and a secondary fermentation, usually only scene in chardonnay production, which produces beautiful buttery notes in the final product.
A premium Reposado Tequila, aged in American Oak barrels. The delicate balance between the notes of agave, and the subtlety of the American oak, discovers a smooth tequila with great presence among the careful selection of sills, ending in the precious, perfect, gold of Tierra Noble.
The nose is rich and complex; nice notes of wood, dehydrated fruits, vanilla and a light touch of chocolate.
To taste, you'll find notes of prunes, toasted almonds, vanilla and light presence of dulce de leche. A luscious premium sipping tequila, or for use in high-end cocktails.
